All evaluations are systematically responded to and followed up by relevant departments in Danida and embassies.
When an evaluation has been completed, a response is written by senior management of the embassy or department in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs responsible for the activity that has been evaluated. This ’management response’ is written in English and ensures that there is systematic determination of the consequences an evaluation should have. Dissemination of the evaluation to Danida staff and management takes place by the conclusions and recommendations of all evaluations being presented in Danida’s internal programme committee but also through presentations at workshops that take place during the evaluations process. The evaluations thus contribute to internal knowledge sharing and to the development and improvement of overall policies and procedures. When an evaluation is made public, a Danish summary is also produced describing the most important conclusions and recommendations of the evaluation as well a brief version of Danida comments on the report. The Danish summary is distributed internally in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs – also to relevant embassies – and is made available to the public on this website along with the evaluation report itself.
Every second year the extent to which and how the evaluations published during the previous two-year period have been followed up is examined.
Further information about Danida’ approach to evaluation of development assistance, including follow-up procedures, can be found in Danida’s evaluation guidelines. These are available under "Reference documents" in the menu on the left.
